How can you change the world, if you don’t understand it? Participating in a global experience is a highlight — and requirement — for all our future leaders.
Broaden your worldview even further than Stanford’s diverse, international community. During your global experience, you’ll come to understand new perspectives, complex social issues, and differing economic systems that you can take with you as you move forward in your career.
Make Your Journey Your Own
See business through a more global lens during a structured, intellectually rigorous program. Choose from existing program opportunities that align with your goals or create your own.
Global Management Immersion Experience
Develop your global mindset by engaging with a new culture and workplace, and apply your academic knowledge and skills to a specific project with a sponsoring organization. GMIX includes hands-on opportunities spanning countries across Asia, Europe, Africa, Latin America, Oceania, and the Middle East.
Project-based immersion experiences last at least four weeks and cover all industries, from healthcare, non-profit and energy efficiency to tech, media, and entertainment. So no matter your specific interests, there’s an opportunity to challenge yourself and explore.

Global Study Trips
Want to share your transformative experience? Global Study Trips offer an intensive group-learning opportunity with 20–30 of your peers. You’ll examine challenging international issues, like sustainability performance, rapidly changing societal demographics, or emerging AI technologies, and work together to brainstorm and explore innovative solutions.
Stanford-Tsinghua Exchange Program
STEP is an academic course and a cross-cultural experiential learning program for students from Stanford GSB and Tsinghua School of Economics and Management in Beijing, China. You’ll develop a deeper, more nuanced understanding of doing business in China, and reciprocate with the school’s exchange students at Stanford’s campus. Gain academic and business insights while forming long-lasting relationships.
Want to develop an independent study project with a Stanford GSB faculty member? Or perhaps you’re interested in creating your own global internship? We’ll help you craft a global experience focused on your academic and career goals (and passions).
